The atomic packing fraction in a simple cubic unit cell is ________

Right Answer is:

0.52

SOLUTION

In a Simple cubic lattice (SC) structure for every one corner atom, there are four nearest neighbors in the same plane plus two nearest neighbors one exactly above and the other exactly below that corner atom.
